My toaster's got a think layer of crumbs inside it. Would it be ok to take it out the back a give it a good hose? As long as I let it dry for a couple of days before using it again what would be the problem?

Hosing is a very bad idea when it comes to electricity. Take it to bits and clean it all out. You can use alcohol spray if you have it and know how it works. Don't apply any water.

Don't they usually have a tray at the bottom you can take out?

The layer of compacted crumb is above that.

Just give it a quick rinse like you would with some pasta.

Tapwater tends to leave mineral residues that can cause short circuits. I'd suggest having a go at it with the crevice tool on your hoover first. You could sluice it out with isopropyl alcohol, but since COVID it'd be cheaper to buy a new toaster than a big bottle of IPA.

Blast it out with compressed air?

Sod these lot, OP. Just take it with you next time you bath and give it a good soak. Could even have toast while you're soaking.
